organically grown ingredients so that was a plus for me.
The first thing I noticed was the amazing citrus scent when I squeezed it in my hand. This comes from the orange flower in it which has an added benefit of brightening the skin’s appearance. It is a gel like texture but like I mentioned does not foam up. The company recommends 2-3 drops which is defiantly more than enough. Massage all around the skin and allow to stay on for about 30 seconds and rinse off. After I used this my skin definitely felt refreshed and clean.
The company says it removes all makeup. With that being said it does not remove eye makeup so you would need a separate remover for the eye area. After using this cleanser for a week I had mixed feelings. The Pros for me was the amazing smell, it felt like a wake up call in the shower in the morning and my skin defiantly looked brighter for makeup application.. Also, the organic ingredients made me feel good about what I was putting on my skin. The cons were that my skin did feel a bit tight after. I was hoping that with it being a nonsoap this would not happen. Unfortunately for me it did. This also may be from the peppermint, orange flower and vitamin c. All of which can sometimes be a little harsher on a sensitive or drier skin type.
All in all if you are looking for a good conscious organic cleaner to try and you are more combination this may be a fit for you. Or for someone like myself that is a bit drier switching it up every other day with another cream or oil based cleanser may give you a nice balance of brightening and hydration.
Now I loved the texture of this serum. It had a very silky smooth application and glided right on. Most times I have to wait before applying concealer and this was not the case it absorbed immediately and I did notice an instance tightening effect. This could definitely be from the olive leaf or the vitamin c. I did bring this serum onto the eye lid up into the brow bone. This is also recommended by the company, which is a plus!
This product was great and I have continued to use it daily. Now, again if hydration around the eye area is a concern for you I would recommend using an additional more hydrating eye cream over it. This is fine since this is an eye serum and it is lighter in texture and not designed to really hydrate but more treat the eye area. Also, when trying any new eye product that has vitamin c do a quick allergy check for those sensitive guys and girls. Out of the two products I tried I really liked this a bit more. So if you are looking for a science meets nature type of skin care line I would recommend trying Nutra Lift. It may be just what your looking for.
